Summary
"Look, these people have it rough in the best of times, but between pirates and sandstorms and Sand People... we can't take much more. If you leave without finishing the job you started, how long before the Empire claims this planet?"
- Galen Besk to the Republic operatives

Around the year 3643 BBY, a team of the Republic operatives were preparing to depart the planet of Tatooine

, Anchorhead community leader, was aware of the their exploits on the planet, and when a sandstorm hit Anchorhead as the operatives were leaving, Besk asked for their assistance in getting people inside the spaceport and out of the storm. The operatives helped to shuttle people to the spaceport. After the sandstorm which destroyed three power generators, Besk revealed his knowledge of their travels and asked the operatives to stay and help a little longer, in order to help unify the settlements. Besk believed that Tatooine's only chance was unity - making communities that could have stand together against warlords and monsters.
Besk had learned of the Empire's plans to destroy the trading post of Espelar - also known as Camp Karnori, a nearby settlement. He believed that if the operatives helped solve the problems afflicting many of the Republic settlements on the planet, the citizens would be able to better stand up against the native Sand People
